“Aloysius Was Always A Rogue”: Ajith Perera Makes Emotional Speech At Group Meeting

In an emotional speech at the government Parliamentary group meeting, Deputy Minister of Power and Energy Ajith P Perera said he always held the view that Arjun Aloysius was a “rogue” and his position hasn’t changed.

Ajith

The Deputy Minister explained to his Parliamentary group colleagues, on Monday, that the detailed bills, which he obtained from his mobile service providers, did not suggest any telephone conversation between him and Aloysius, the controversial businessman who is at the centre of the bond fiasco.

“He may have tried to contact me and I may have responded to the missed call by calling back without knowing his identity. But clearly there was no conversation and the mobile service provider assured that. If the calls were connected, it would have shown on the detailed bill. I am willing to present my detailed bills to any party,” the Deputy Minister asserted.

“During the COPE sessions I stated that Aloysoius was a rogue. There has to be an investigation into his conduct, There is no doubt about that. But I haven’t seen, nor have I heard the voice of this person,” he said.

Ironically, when Ajith P Perera made this speech, former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, a close friend of Aloysius, was seated next to him. Karunanayake seemed uncomfortable when Perera repeatedly attacked Aloysius, in his speech.

The Deputy Minister also said the document present to the Presidential Commission on the bond issue was no different to a “kala paththare”. “There was no information on call durations. There was no information on phone numbers. It paints a completely different picture about the matter and tarnishes our reputation,” he added urging Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to hold an investigation into the matter.

Perera reiterated that the whole issue had infringed on their rights and privileges as MPs.

The Prime Minister, responding to the Deputy Minister’s remark, instructed him to make a request from the Speaker to conduct an investigation into the matter .

      Gota arrest warrant stay ordered ?? So no arrest !!

      Before they remove this stay order and the imminent arrest of this man President and the country with the Armed forces should be on full alert to prevent slaughter and destruction
      by Gota Brigade/ Brigand and the Moda followers.
      We all know who those thugs would be.

      This is the reason for the delay in arresting of this ” Slaughterer of Srilanka.”

      Best to find out the links Allo to have with former Rogue king Mahinda Jarapakshe.

      That can reveal almost everything.

      If current prez is brave, he should finally let the bunched be caught by lanken laws.

      That can do harm to SLFP to some extent, but that will not last longer. We only want Rajapakshes be away from lanken active politics.

      They deserve court punishments.

          Percy, you may be genetically related to Rajapakshes. I hate the guy to have abused the funds of the masses as no others. And the harm he has done to this nation is more than what his term achieved in terms of elemination of terror. Latter is btw collective thing though th ebugger et al got it painted in favour of them the Rajapakshe. Very same so called magical man to have abused the funds amounting to billions is beyond our comphrehensions.
          Leaders become popular through gulliable masses and the media men which they themselves have put to bright them. But the nation would not remain so stupid as has been sofar forever. Wimal weerawanse or Dayan Jathilaka would NOT be able to work as condom support to Rajapakshe forever.
          Please be aware, world is watching at us.
          Lankens are read as highly literate nation, but their thinking has been caught by so called buddhism led extremists.
          Buddhism that have been practised in the country by masses are not buddhism, but just an another religion to promote their extremist agendas.

          Buddha s teachings would not lead high crime doers to be put on altar the way – you and the masses have been doing.
          We want a country free from Rajapakshe politics.

          Then we can see a state that will work for all srilankens equally.

              You guys have been fooled as is the case with masses in the country. Masses means gulliable folks down there.

              You cant understand ? Try to understand not being stuck to abusive folks, Then only you will see it beyond Percy.

          I hate the buggers just because of the harm done to the masses in this country.

          Telling someting palatable and doing the all unacceptable has been the number one nature of Ballige putha Rajapakshes.

          Even today, people dont know for what the bugger et al have been capable of.
          They have no brains. That they have proved not once a dozen of time sofar.

          Why to beware ? Do you think as Lasantha or any other innocients were killed out, they can kill me too ?

          Man, – Karma will punish them if not today tomorrow, that is for me, sure like the sunrise in tomorrow s dawn.

          Number one hatred and devious malicious thoughts provoker is Dayan Jayathilalka not me.
          The wound healing will take longer than we ever guessed at. Rajapakshe jara politics made even infants life long debtors. No matter the truths have been that worst, you guys to live up your fantasies is beyond bearing.

          And the other buggers that spread extremists thoughts of MR are Derana and some of sirasa. You guys are just wandibattayas that abuse the situation for your cost of living.
          Maximoron, please wake up tomorrow will be too late. Hope not you live in the same bin as is the case with Dayan Jayathilaka the most abusive man of the country.

    Why are you saying this sort of thing against RW’s close friend Arjuna Mahendran’s son in law? AM is famous elite Colombo UNP top member Tamil Charlie Mahendran’s son and Aloysius is married to AMs daughter. They are all close to RW, Malik Samarawickreme, Eran W etc. You dare not speak again like this

    Privileges of MPs? What a bull-shit! So they think that they could indulge in criminal activities behind the cloak of an MP’s privilege? Damned right that their phone accounts have been examined. Otherwise we would not have been aware of what they were up to. Now we know what the UNP COPErs were doing behind the back of the public. If AP knew that Aloysius was rogue right from the beginning, why did not he shout out at the time.

    It looks all the looters now try to escape by prosecuting Arjun Aloesius alone. People voters these Rogues expecting the honesty and accountability. Now the Grand looter as well as the members are escaping from it and it looks there is no shame in them. [Edited out]

    This MP is going nuts. When he joined that “Foot Note Nade”, he should have known he was playing with fire. It is useless to recollect all what MP Ajith Perera said at various TV discussions on the subject of “Bond”. To make matters worse, he is now on a campaign to clear his name by hanging on to Parliamentarians “PRIVILEGES”. What rubbish is that? He also refers to those “Notes” relating to the telephone calls submitted to the Commission as “KELE PATHARE”. It was the Presidential Commission that wanted those details and the respective investigating authorities had to oblige. So what and where is his respect for the Commission. Mind you he is a “Lawyer”. He is more worried about his reputation than the “Biggest Ever CENTRAL BANK ROBBERY in the world. What a PRODUCT of a “LAWYER” we have in this country? This is the whole trouble with these MPs. They never think no end of themselves and behave and talk like ALMIGHTY., little realizing they were put into those positions by the voter. In a way, we cannot blame them too; because those who put them into the Parliament are “Dumb” “A…..H” . Do people in this country want to be treated this LOWLY by their own representatives? Make a note and KICK THEM OUT at the next available opportunity.

    I can understand the pain of mind caused in the poor man to find his number in the wretched list. But Ajith, don’t forget that you were a member of the foot-note club. Now that makes the difference in the eyes of any man with an iota of intelligence. If you thought Aloysius was a rogue from the beginning, why on earth did you become a part and parcel of foot-notes. Ajith! I like you! You are basically a good man. But putting two and two together doesn’t sound good for you in the eyes of the public. Even a missed call from Aloysius is damning because the question arises how did Aloysius get to know your phone number? Either you gave it or another foot-noter gave it implicating some form of collusion to have the desired finding.

    Way back in 1992 as a your IT graduate I got a job at Aloysius business empire, Free Lanka Group which was founded by his grandfather to act like a local agent in 60s and 70s for importing foodstuff through C W E which was sole importer of foodstuffs that time.

    With a personal contact I was employed and even in that time they possesed a IBM Mini computer system which did process huge data and they did process outsourced Data to third parties like Banks.

    That was the infancy in IT in Sri Lanaka and even that time they were well off and also they had a Duty Free shops and a liquor shop in Libert Plaza Shopping complex.

    I found the office culture is so bad and even did not stay a week there and few months later, I left Sri Lanka for good.,

    They were deal makers for the last 50 years and a shame that RW who boasts a 40 years as a MP did appoint Arjun M the F-I-L of Aloysius to mange the nations coffers and subsequently to rob the CBSL.

      Jayaweera,
      Rob the CBSL? Really? Would you care to reveal how much was robbed ? Please provide exact details. Repeating other people’s stories won’t do. I will give you a hint. 12% of 10 billion is 1.2 billion.

    Was Mahendran a good man ?

    What about the chap who appointed him Governor ?

    What about the Finance Minister who gave Mahendran an undated and untitled letter ( without any reference no too)out of the blues saying the government needs Billions of rupees ?

    This story will never end for the rascal culprits.

    These the so called privileges are enacted by themselves to safeguard from malicious attacks on their reputation, if they have one and not applicable to rouges, robbers, embezzlers, womanizers, child abusers etc. If AP thinks he can hide behind such obnoxious regulation he is sadly mistaken. Now just see Sujeewa says he contacted Alosious to gather information for the book, mind you on the Bond Issue. But the conversations have been long after the the controversial book was published. We also want to know who funded the publication. They all should be kicked out of parliament. As there is no such provision like in India who must bring them in.

    Hon. Ajith Perera were you not at that private party where Aloysious displayed his arrack (Mendis Special) to the PM ?

    The PM thought that Aloysious was no longer in the Bond trade and was now fully into selling Arrack.

    too late my dear Ajith…… we lost trust with you when you inserted “foot notes” to protect the rogue. What Aloysius robbed was our money in EPF and you lead the foot note gang to cover it up. we will never trust you or vote for you again.

    UNP COPE members caught trying to squeeze Aloysius for their cut, are now caught with their pants down!!
    No calls were tapped!! All that has been produced is call lists and the way the culprits are sceaming is clear proof they don’t want any recordings to be produced in a future legal case.

    We had MUDALAALEEs all along in our Sri Lankan political culture. Dasa Mudalaalee (Mrs Sirimavo’s), Aloysius Mudalaalee (Mr Premadasa’s) and now this present Aloysius (Mr Ranil’s). The difference is Dasa and former Aloysius spent their wealth for the party and then prospered after the party got power. Present Aloysius didn’t do any such favour but after Ranil came to power he became the richest in Sri Lanka. What a Ranil !!

    So Aloysius was always a rogue? You are telling us now. Doesn’t it seem ridiculous.
    Who are the other rogues in the YAHAPALANAYA Gvt ? Or are you waiting for another Commission of Inquiry to reveal that? A jith P Perera you are guilty of extreme humbuggery.

    Aloysius was a close friend of Cabraal and the MARA. For years they kept screwing the country with the direct placements made with Aloysius’s companies. In fact Cabral’s sister was on the board of Perpetual Trustees and this practice has been going on for a very long time. Why is MS only interested in the yahalpanaya government relationship between PT and the central bank when during the Rajapakse regime billions and billions had been robbed from the central bank by the puppet and crook Cabral. This investigation is peanuts compared to the billions that were taken out of the bank to fund the MARA ‘s election campaign , the money illegally spent on the Commonwealth games bid using prostitutes, the commissions made by Cabral on the Greek bond purchases and buying properties for Gota’s son to live in the USA. The dumbo Amunugama who is a close mate of Gota has made a dumb statement that Gota should not be arrested for the 90 million spent on building the memorial for his father in Tangalle as this was not benefited by him but an administrative blunder. Amudegama needs to be educated on some basics of governance like what Gota has done is equivalent to the monies from the public purse been given to Gota personally to spend on building this mausoleum for a character who has done nothing for the country – this is called illegal expenditure for which he should be prosected and landed in jail. Amud egama also needs to be educated on a concept called abuse of power which means that public property cannot be utilised on personal matters that have n o relationship whatsoever to the government budget. This Amudegama how the f… was he ever been appointed as a Finance minister when he is sooooo ignorant!!!! Incidentally the guy is also a good mate of the self proclaimed political goon DJ. All arseholes who are thirsty for power at the expense of the people. We can only cry for Sri Lanka when goons like this exist.

      No doubt Mara and his acolytes were looting the banks with the help of Cab raal and Aloy, but the point we are making is they together with all the looters in the present regime, MPs , Ministers, and even the PM (if he is party to this mega scam) should be arrested and prosecuted, and all ill-gotten gains returned to the Public treasury and their investments confiscated. That is the minimum that the public is expecting. We do not accept off setting the criminal activities of one lot in favour of the criminal activities of another lot. Quite honestly both regimes have shown that they have deceitful and using government officers to do their bidding because they were in power. All the money that they have looted belongs to the Public and so their criminal activities cannot be forgiven or written off. If the President cannot be trusted then I think either the military must take over the administration and dispense law and order to the country. If not I think the public has the right to take actions themselves as they fit, because we have come to a point that the country has become ungovernable. If the people that were entrusted to govern the country are themselves behaving as criminals helping themselves, do any of you in this forum accept that the country is governable?

    All politicians involved in frauds and utter corrupt dealings are in hibernation unable to come out from the cocoons. They are banking on the political intervention of the two leaders . We wonder if the 6.2 million people could have any hope at all in the honesty and integrity of the two leaders who are playing dilly dally with these serious and sensitive issues in the country. We hope they are aware that they cannot use their discretion issuing orders to Officers who are doing their duties under difficult circumstances but the people know that it is being done surreptitiously by the two leaders. President has passed the buck to PM but by the time he returns to the country the President could take wings abroad derailing the
    cause of justice scoffing at the unsuspecting voters. Politicians are the bane of our country’A country gets the government it deserves’ so the saying goes. My final thoughts are ‘what cannot be cured must be endured’.
